The police claimed to have arrested a gangster along with three drug suppliers and recovered four firearms along with ammunition from their possession. The police also recovered 266 gm heroin from them. However, two of his accomplices are still at large.

The accused have contacts in Delhi from where they brought heroin and supplied it in state. Gangster Sukhwinder Singh Soni, alias Boxer, a national-level boxer, has links with another gangster, Harinder Singh Rinda of Maharashtra. He also had links with wanted terrorist Kashmir Singh Galwadi. A dozen cases, including recovery of 3-kg RDX, are pending against Boxer.

Ranbir Singh, DIG, Ludhiana Range, while addressing a press conference at the SSP Office, Khanna, said a police team was patrolling near the Doraha bus stand. They got a tip-off that some drug smugglers were coming in a car and were also carrying weapons. The police set up a naka near the Canal Bridge, Rampur, and intercepted a car and nabbed Boxer, Jasdeep Singh Koki and Vishal Kumar and recovered arms and ammunitions from them. During search, 260 gm heroin was also recovered from them. Another drug smuggler, Iqbalpreet Singh, was also arrested and 6 gm heroin was recovered from him. The police have constituted teams to arrest their accomplices — Bahadur Singh and Ramandeep Singh Bhau.

The DIG said during investigation, it came to light that when Boxer was in Nabha jail, he came in contact with Galwadi. During the jail-break incident, Galwadi escaped with other gangsters and is still at large.

Boxer revealed that Rinda told him to buy an AK-47 after which he came in contact with a few J&K residents. The DIG said Boxer supplied heroin in the state.
